Blower is on ebay...this turbo is a garrett 2007 tp3801 7.3 ford powerstroke unit..67mm inducer, t4 divided 1.15 ar with 77mm turbine..no doubt a good match to the 600 hp mark..turbo for me...less downtime...

Well..i tried and tried to get motivated to finish it..but when my friends are building cars making between 500-1000hp...i just didnt feel like dickin around with a 1.3 anymore..my loyalty will always lye with suzuki 4x4s..for life...but in the fast street car game..im out...

Sold off most of my crap to a fellow suzuki nut and am currently in the process of cutting the firewall and floor out of it and am going to build off the cage work ive built for a full tube chassis car...narrowed 9", modded 904 torqueflight, and a studded, big cam, oringed 225 slant six!..im back to my roots and where i started 20 years ago..gt3782 vgt, 38mm gate, blow thru impco 425 lpg setup..shootin for low tens and 20-30 psi boost/500hp...no more dickin around...i want a real street sweeper..a double hurt..getting beat my a slant powered geo is pretty sad haha...ill post more as i go..but thats the beans of it all...

Most of you following me know im crazy haha..since my last post..ive bought and sold probably 5-6 other vehichles/projects..even the turbo tracker sold...

I reckon ill never sell the metro...just keep makin it more and more insane..and its being set up as a do it all car..NOT just a drag toy...
Till next time...later!
